Market Commentary

Morning Comments 04/16

Continued talk of accelerated plantings is depressing corn futures. The corn market is very likely benefitting from strength spilling over from the soy and wheat complexes, especially with underlying demand for the yellow grain seeming quite robust as well. However, forecasts for persistent short-term dryness makes traders think Midwest plantings will surge during the days ahead, thereby improving fall production prospects. May corn skidded 2.25 cents to $5.015/bushel early Wednesday morning, while December dipped 2.0 to $5.0125.
